Noah Scalin's Skull Baroque
A graduate of the NYU Tisch School of The Arts, Noah is a lifelong activist (whose first protest marches were spent in a stroller and then on roller skates). The former art director of independent movie studio Troma Entertainment and international clothing company Avirex, Noah used his experience with youth marketing and passion for grassroots activism to create his own ethically driven firm. Noah’s work at ALR has gained international exposure in over two-dozen books and is frequently featured in design publications, including How Magazine’s “Good Company” cover story Jan/Feb 2006. Noah also developed a course on socially conscious design for Virginia Commonwealth University and founded a long running community supported agriculture group in Richmond, Virginia. SKULLS, a book based on his award-winning blog Skull-A-Day, was published in October 2008 by Lark Books.
